Following on from a thread at UK Divers Forum about the best way to look after your kit, I thought I'd share the way it is done in the Coldhands' household:
Hang all the kit up in the specially made totem pole in the garden and hose down throughly. Bitch continuously about whose turn it is to do this.
Wait four days until the rain stops and then, once your kit is dried to merely damp, take it in and store in the utility to dry off properly. Bitch continuously about whose turn it is to do this.
Bark shins and knock something over every time you squeeze through the utility. Spill tea on your kit each time you pass. Bitch about this every time. This stage may take weeks.
Eventually, when all kit is perfectly dry, pack away carefully and store under the stairs, bitching continuously because you definitely did this last time and it must be someone else's turn by now. Realise you're going diving again just a few days after putting things away and start the whole process all over again.
